What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Every once in a while (2X a week or so), when I submit a comment, the timestamp says that I submitted it "in 0 seconds" instead of the usual "0 secs ago". This isn't a huge problem, but if it can easily be fixed, I'd like it to be.

According to Geoff, it should have been fixed. – Matthew Read Sep 2 '11 at 20:10
Last month. I see, but it hasn't been fixed, at least not on ELU. – Daniel Sep 2 '11 at 20:13

I am changing it so that time differences of 4 seconds or less will no longer display as

… in 3 seconds

… 2 seconds ago

but rather

… just now

because really, what is the point of such absurd precision when we're talking about something that happened seconds ago?

Exactly, compared to Reddit, which cares enough to tell us how many milliseconds it took between submitting a post and a page refresh. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 3 '11 at 16:52
